CLIMATE CHANGE/COP 26 COMMISSIONS
Deadline: 18 Jun 2021
Applications are now open to submit initial proposals for the Scene Stirling Climate Change/COP 26 Commissions scheme.
Up to 5 artists will be selected to work as part of a cohort to develop a collaborative project around the theme of Climate Change and the Arts in the lead up to COP 26, in November 2021.
Each successful candidate will be awarded:
• £2000 commission fee,
• the opportunity to be paired with a suitable professional mentor
• dedicated workshops and resources to build digital and PR skills (July/August 2021, dates TBC).
• As part of the scheme, the cohort will also have the opportunity to lead a programme/workshop/event in the lead up to COP 26 in November 2021.
As this is a peer-learning opportunity, we are not looking for finished proposals at this stage - we expect the cohort, once formed, to be working jointly to design a collaborative programme in August 2021. What we are looking for now is an overview of what you would bring to the table, your previous experience, your understanding of the relationship between climate change and the arts, and most of all your motivation to apply to be part of the commissioned cohort.
Applications are open until Sunday 13th June 2021.
Candidates will be notified of the outcome of their application, and if successful allocated an interview slot, by Friday 18th June 2021.
Interviews will be held w/c 21st June 2021. Final outcome will be announced to interviewed candidates on Monday 28th June 2021.
If you wish to discuss your application, our team would be happy to support you at any stage; just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
